Can I add adaptive cruise control to my BMW after purchase?
I was looking at the adaptive cruise control feature for BMWs and I’m unsure if it’s something I’ll need. Can I add it after if I don’t get it before I buy the car?
Answer provided by
Adaptive cruise control is a handy feature—especially if you drive long distances at high speeds. You can add adaptive cruise control to your BMW after purchase, but it won’t be the same system that comes standard in BMWs from the factory. It might also require other modifications or accommodations to the vehicle’s system.
You’re generally looking at a cost of about $2,000 to $2,500 for the system itself, not including installation. This is for a top-of-the-line system that works at speeds ranging from 60 mph to a complete stop.
But here’s the thing—most BMWs come standard with adaptive cruise control, so you don’t have to worry about adding it afterward. If it’s a function you don’t want to use, simply leave it disengaged.
Having adaptive cruise control is handy during long drives, but you’ll also need to ensure you’re protected on long drives with a solid insurance policy.

How do I know if I have full coverage car insurance?
I've been in numerous accidents since I started driving—most of which were not my fault, but I definitely have some bad luck. Given this, I'd feel more comfortable if I have full coverage car insurance. My parents initially signed me up for my coverage, so I'm not exactly sure of what's on it—how can I find out if I do have full coverage?
